Good Afternoon sister. Its Tuesday with Janelle. I am excited about this recipe because I have a secret, I am NOT creative in making things like this however Janelle makes this SO easy!
Janelle blogs over at Comfy in the Kitchen  and has SO many recipes for any occasion. Today she will be sharing with us “Piggie Cookies”. I think all kids will love these cookies just because they look like a pig and they will be oinking the whole time they are eating them LOL

PIGGIE COOKIES

I found this adorable recipe in a Taste of Home magazine a few years back. At the time, I decided it was the perfect recipe to make for my son’s school picnic … the children loved them!

This week I will be making “piggies” for a baseball picnic for my son. There are a few steps, but they are worth it.. I’m so looking forward to the sweet smiles of these boys who worked so hard….

(When I make these I give my children a cookie, a spoon of frosting, and the toppings on the side and let them have fun making their own.)


Make your dough (as directed) and scoop into Tablespoons onto an un-greased cookie sheet

Bake @ 375 for 10-12 mins or until edges are lightly browned

Cool on racks

Start doing your “prep work” by cutting strawberry wafers into quarters then cutting them horizontally (these will be be the piggy ears)

Slice marshmallow in half

Use the “sticky” side of the marshmallow to place butterscotch chips- I did not poke holes as directed, I simply pushed them in.

Make your frosting as directed using powdered sugar, butter, milk, vanilla and red food coloring

Mix Well

Frost cooled cookies

Add the snout
then the mini-choc chips (eyes) and the strawberry wafers (ears)

 
Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened

1-1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

FROSTING/DECORATING:

4 cups confectioners’ sugar

1/2 cup butter, melted

6 tablespoons milk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 to 4 drops red food coloring

Pink sugar wafer cookies

36 large marshmallows, halved

Butterscotch chips and miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

For frosting, in a large bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, butter, milk, vanilla and food coloring. Frost cookies.

Cut sugar wafers into triangles; place two on each cookie for ears. With a toothpick, poke two holes in each marshmallow half for nostrils; press butterscotch chips into holes. Place noses on cookies; add chocolate chip eyes. Yield: 6 dozen
